This week’s plant-based diet meal plan is full of easy and delicious recipes! This meal plan is perfect for busy families. We do a little meal prep on the weekend because our work week is very busy but you don’t have to meal prep to make this work.
I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to these plant-based recipes!
To help the week run a bit smoother, this weekend we prepared:
- Lentil and Squash Soup*
- Mediterranean Chickpea Salad* that we will serve over greens
- Apple Oatmeal Muffins for snacks
- Instant Pot Brown Rice
We still have leftover Instant Pot Oatmeal and Instant Pot Breakfast Rice that we made last week. We pretty much make a new batch as soon as we run out of each recipe. We also have a bunch of golden potatoes we cooked in the Instant Pot.
Plant-Based Dinner Meal Plan
Our dinner meal plan includes some of the items we meal prep and other recipes that are usually easy enough to make on a week night after a long day of work.
Monday: Lentil and Squash Soup* (made during our meal prep)
Tuesday: Mediterranean Chickpea Salad* (made during our meal prep) served over greens. We are back to our salad routine.
Thursday: Quick and Easy Stir Fry* made with the Instant Pot Brown Rice we cooked during our meal prep. Here is a similar stir fry recipe.
Friday: Bean and Potato Quesadillas* are such an easy and delicious meal. I love them for Friday night because we can quickly make them and have family movie night.

We eat these dinner leftovers for lunch every day. We almost always have lettuce and veggies for salads, steamed potatoes and a soup in the fridge. We will combine those items with other leftovers for a really great lunch!
I’ve worked from home for years, only occasionally going to the office for meetings. Since the pandemic started, Jim and the boys are working and schooling from home too. We love being together all the time and eating lunch together. Before we had the opportunity to eat lunch together, we would rarely take the break to eat a good meal.
